“Great vibe. Went in for an iced coffee and ended up sitting down to relax and drink it. I had asked when ordering if they had hummus not on a bagel but in a bowl. They didn’t. While sipping my coffee the owner brought over, gratis, hummus on toast. So very nice and I’ve been back numerous times and have ordered the egg salad sandwich with a side of pasta for lunch. Both the sandwich and pasta are delicious.” – Kate T.

“The food at Saturday Morning Cafe was phenomenal. The seafood Omelette was my favorite. Packed with crabmeat and topped with some sauce and shrimp. The skillet was really delicious. Had to spice it up with some salt & pepper because the grits were bland, but after that, the dish was a 5. The scrambled eggs were the best-scrambled eggs I’ve had thus far. The chicken was well seasoned and fried crispy with the chicken & waffles and the blueberry pancakes were something delicious. Will definitely have to return to explore more of the menu options.” – Robert B.

“David and Dad’s is absolutely the best restaurant, café, food place in the entire city of Baltimore Maryland. The staff is unbelievable, and the food is “out of this world”. The portions you receive are large generous, especially their breakfast, but the pricing is very reasonable. I love going there for breakfast, their omelet breakfast, so I don’t have to eat lunch! I wish I would’ve found this cafe sooner, and I also wish they were open on Sundays, which presently they are not. It’s a definite must-try if you’re in Baltimore. It’s a shame you can’t give them six stars.” – Rollo T.

I also ordered their ham and cheese sandwich with turkey and it was delightful. A great little place for a coffee date or simply to work. I’ve worked from home for an entire day here and absolutely loved it.” – Grace M.

The bread is made fresh every day using natural leavening and a slow-rising procedure to give it a rich, complex flavor and a thick crust.
Black Tea, Caffe Espresso, Milk Chocolate, and More
“This was a cute little bakery cafe. I had the avocado toast with pistachios, red pepper flakes. It was yummy, and the avocado and pistachios balanced well with the red pepper flakes, though it was a bit strong. The iced mocha tasted great as well, though it was filled with more ice than coffee. The blueberry tartlet was also great with real blueberries in it. The service was great with a knowledgeable cashier, and let us know where to pick up our order. Outdoor and indoor seating was plenty, and comfortable.” – Melissa P.
